Facebook AND Deviantart Art Thief

:iconapricotknight:
ApricotKnight Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Alright so the thief strikes again.

:iconbonniecorpse: Has posted my actual drawings with my signature erased a few months ago... I approached her about it and she denied being aware of such a thing and took it down before dA could bann her. If you look at her page she has a bunch of other people's work on her page... STILL.


NOW! She is posting my drawings that she traced so horribly on facebook...and her facebook isn't on private.

Here is the link to the two drawings on her facebook.

And here is my own drawings from my old account.

Why on earth are you stealing bad art I did 5 years ago? Seriously. :T

You're welcome for informing you about someone who may potentially steal your work or someone you know. Good Day.

If you know that your art, or another user's art is being stolen on DA, send DA a DMCA takedown notice. DO NOT HARASS THE THEIF, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REASON WITH THEM OR CONTACT THEM IN ANY WAY. I had to do it once before the DA admins took the work down within a few hours. Don't bother using the report button either.

Done so. Also, you're supposed to message them polietly (these are the directions DMCA give out) ask them to remove, if they do not. Send them an official notice. Then message DMCA etc etc.

Which I've done. Thank you for your response! : )

holy cripes, I've never been on a complaints thread before and after seeing all these nasty ass comments you received I don't think I ever want to be. I've never seen such a large group of nasty, snarky, outright vicious people on one deviantart thread attacking the artist rather than the thief . This kind of shit blows my fucking mind. Good luck getting this resolved, bro (which as others have stated, on dA's end will take months).

We're only attacking the artist because this isn't the place to post such a thing.

Also, we can't really do anything about it anyway as we aren't the original artist.

My summary of what's happening here: kiddies think that acting like everywhere is 4chan makes them good at the Internet.
Complain and whine all you want, but the least you people can do is take a look through the pictures to see if you recognize any of them as traced and hopefully notify the appropriate artists.

Complaints is not your personal army, nor is it an anti-art theft group. It is neither our responsibility nor our obligation to "take a look through the pictures to see if you recognize any of them as traced and notify the appropriate artists."

"Not your personal army" <-- You're proving my point right here. This isn't /b/.
But if you wouldn't like to do that, then don't. There's no reason to tell me the tales of your inaction.

I really hope that her stolen/traced works get removed soon.

Dani though, you did nothing wrong; you didn't tell people to go report her, you were just informing.
I don't understand why so many people wanted to take time out of their day to just repeat something totally pointless.
I would rather have them take a moment to find another art thieve. This is an art community that should be willing to help protect art.

It's just so sad, five years ago when I joined dA I would have never thought that the community would stab itself like this.

Keyword- Inform.

Complaints isn't for informing.

It's for actually complaining. If she had phrased it so that she was bitching about it, then maybe she wouldn't have gotten as many responses as she had.

I think it comes down to ignorance, entitlement, and a desire to get the compliments without doing the work.

I'm sorry I miss read your comment. I didn't catch what you were replying to. (I thought you were refering to people making comments ABOUT the thieves and not doing the reporting themselves.) Again I apologize for jumping the gun.

Have it ever crossed your small little mind, that I was just informing the public about the art thief? After I've done all of the reporting? Ever think that? No I guess not because all of your minds only operate on drama and causing more of it. You guys are seriously ridiculous.

You do realize she is talking about thieves right? Jesus, stop taking this forum so seriously. Art theft is a dead horse complaint here, that topic has been beaten senseless (AKA we already know, there is only so much we can do, deal with it). Making too many reports floods the thousands that have been made before and there are only so many admins to deal with them.

Eh, it's easy. :shrug:
I mean, I only have to go to your page, take something and upload it somewhere else. Claim it's my own and blammo, done. Who cares about the progress; these people are just fishing for quick compliments. Which is why I cannot say I really mind though; it is not like it hurts my reputation or financial standing or anything.

Perhaps my having a spine and actually wanting to have earned the compliments makes it something I just can't grasp.

:iconpiratesadventure:
PiratesAdventure Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012
Probably. It is very much the same thing as all the attention-whores fishing for pity. You know, like that one famous case of someone on DA who was claiming to have been dying from cancer? Or how about the countless of people claiming they were going to commit suicide and then post as an alt or mysteriously come back from the dead? I see it pretty much as the same thing, except art theft is even easier than that as you don't have to do anything but have some basic Googling skills.
